Contract: AEA SPT 3 / NON AEA

ROSETTA: (THIS ROLE HAS BEEN PRE-CAST).  Female. 40’s-50’s, Black. Pretty, vivacious, an irrepressible spirit. A mean guitar player with a bluesy voice. Plays spirituals that swing.

MARIE: Female. 20’s-30’s. Black. A more traditional alto gospel singer, plays piano (not required). No exactly as she appears. On her way to being a spiritual star.


An Earth-Shaking Musical Celebration

Gospel and rock & roll collide in Marie and Rosetta, where the legendary Sister Rosetta Tharpe takes her rightful place in the spotlight. DFW favorite Denise Lee embodies the incomparable Tharpe, bringing her fierce musical bravado and powerhouse presence to life. The play chronicles Tharpe’s first rehearsal with protégée Marie Knight, setting the stage for a historic tour that would establish them as one of the most significant music duos of the 20th century.

Despite their influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and more, Knight and Tharpe go largely uncredited for their contributions to rock and roll. George Brant’s play, first presented at Atlantic Theatre Company, seeks to right this wrong by giving the pair a venue to tell their story; one ground-shaking performance at a time. Brace yourself for a mash-up of rock concert and theatre, delivering an unforgettable night of toe-tapping, head-bopping, and soul-lifting entertainment. Don’t miss the chance to witness the birth of a musical legacy that transcends time with Marie and Rosetta.

UBRU:  Male, 40’s-60’s, any race, equivalent to a modern day cliché Boomer, easily and comically frustrated, stuck but determined, excellent comedic actor with stage combat skills

DILGAN:  Male, 20’s, any race, equivalent to a modern day cliché Gen “Z”er, sardonic at times, tender in others, appears scrawny, comically disinterested at first but finds his inner strength as the play advances, excellent comedic actor with stage combat skills

THE ADMINISTRATOR: Male/Female, 30’s and up, any race, equivalent to a modern day middle management boss, desires more, avoids hard tasks, not a great leader.


A coworker dispute turns deadly in this morbidly funny new play by Harley Elias. Set during the Assyrian Empire, The Handless King casts our heroes as two lowly government employees, both tasked with tallying the dead in wake of a recent battle. The problem? Only one of them can keep their jobs. As the day wears on, truths are revealed, revolution draws near, and someone’s losing limbs before the sun is set. The play drew inspiration from a stele (slab of writing) dating back to 728 BCE, that displayed two writing systems existing at once for the first time in our natural history. This high-octane historical fantasy comes to you after a wildly successful development at Amphibian Stage’s 2023 Sparkfest.

ROLES AVAILABLE (The entire cast must reflect the diversity of Latin American peoples–can be brown, black, or white.):

Don Beltrán – (M, 40s to 60s) A fop who loves sweets and the luxuries he can no longer afford. He doesn’t see what he doesn’t want to see and lives his life as though wishing it will make it so.

Profesor Lázaro – (any gender, 40s to as old as you like) Nervous, rule-bound, and loyal. Would rather walk on broken glass than disappoint.

Juan García – (M, 20s) So charming and gregarious that no one ever makes him confront the fact the he’s a compulsive liar. Like his father, he lives his life as though saying something out loud will make it true.

Lucrecia – (F, 20s) Intelligent, observant, and ambitious. Though she doesn’t come from aristocracy she has an unflappable elegance that makes her a powerful presence.

Jacinta – (F, 20s) Fearless, smart and a little mischievous. She’s somewhat torn between what she really wants and what she believes someone of her social class should want.

Isabel – (F, 20s to 40s) Working class. Gullible and charming with a delightful sense of humor. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.

Fernando – (M, 20s to 30s) Insecure, but really really working on his confidence. He has to give himself a pep talk, but is able to muster up the courage to go for what he wants.

Diego – (M, 20s to 40s) Loyal, wise, and sees everything that no one else notices. It’s a little annoying that all these people who aren’t as smart as he is have all the power.

Doña Susana – (F, 40s to as old as you like) Elegant, practical, and manipulative. But she’s Mexican so she is all charm, and her machinations are entirely passive aggressive.


“This is the way the world ends. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a big fat lie.”

He’s got looks that kill, charm for days, and absolutely…no. grip. on. reality. Juan Garcia has returned to his hometown of Oaxaca, armed with grand tales and big dreams of becoming the city’s biggest celebrity. Watch as he weaves a tapestry of tall tales and misadventures, aiming to impress (and possibly confuse) everyone, particularly the lady of his misguided affections. But as bills pile up and tired servants reach their limit, the stage is set for a comedy of errors that even Juan can’t lie his way out of. Fiction collides with truth in a spectacular night of theatre that promises to leave you breathless.
